Service Information for Philadelphia Eagles Championship Parade – Thursday, February 8
 
Detailed and updated information about SEPTA service for the Eagles Parade is available at on the Eagles Parade section of SEPTA’s website.  Fans traveling to the parade should review the information before traveling.  Parade details can be found on the City of Philadelphia website and the Philadelphia Eagles website.
 
FREE RIDES ON Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines
FREE Rides on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines sponsored by Independence Blue Cross will be the best way for fans to get to and from the parade and festivities on Broad Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.  Information on Broad Street and Market Frankford Line service is available at: http://www.septa.org/eagles/index.html
 
Regional Rail Service Information
  • ALL 50,000 Independence Passes that were available will be SOLD OUT
  • Unless customers have a Weekly or Monthly TrailPass or an Independence Pass, they will not be able to ride Regional Rail tomorrow and should plan now to use other SEPTA transit service.
  • Having a TrailPass or Independence Pass is not a guarantee of travel on Regional Rail.  Customers should arrive at stations early as demand for service will likely exceed capacity.
  • No Regional Rail fares will be sold on the morning of the parade.
  • Please plan to be dropped off or park and walk to stations.  Parking at Regional Rail Stations is at capacity on a normal weekday.  During the morning inbound service period we anticipate serving many times more riders than there is available parking.
  • Following the parade, customers returning home will need to board at the Center City Station they were dropped off at in the morning.
 
There are a number of transit options for customers to travel from outlying areas to Center City or to connect with the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines.  Alternate Travel Information from many Regional Rail Stations can be found on the Regional Rail Section of the Eagles Parade page: http://www.septa.org/eagles/regional-rail.html
 
Bus, Trolley, Norristown High Speed Line & CCT Paratransit
A number of bus routes that operate on and around the parade route in South Philadelphia and Center City will be detoured.  City Trolley Routes 10, 11, 13, 34 and 36 will not stop at 15th Street, and additional adjustments are possible.  The following Bus Routes (27 in total) will be on scheduled detour: 2, 4, 7, 9, 12, 16, 17, 21, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33, 37, 38, 40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 48, 64, 68, 79, 124, 125 and G.  Please visit the Eagles Parade section of SEPTA’s website for route specific information.  The Routes 101 and 102 Trolleys and the Norristown High Speed Line will stop at all stations, with service every 15 minutes.  Updated service information will be posted throughout the day on: http://www.septa.org/realtime/status/system-status.shtml
 
CCT Paratransit will operate regular weekday service, although travel could be significantly impacted by rolling road closures and heavy pedestrian traffic.  If possible, SEPTA encourages customers who are planning trips for medical care facilities near the parade route to schedule their appointments the day before the parade.
 
Safety on the SEPTA System
SEPTA always reminds the public to “Respect the Train” by not walking along or crossing train tracks. That message is especially important as the region heads to Center City for the Eagles championship parade on February 8.  Many of the passengers using SEPTA for the parade will not be regular customers. To assist all riders, especially those unfamiliar with the SEPTA system, the Authority will have employee ambassadors at all stations.  It is important for riders to pay attention to the directions of our staff and let trains come to a complete stop before attempting to get on or off trains. Passengers should also stand behind the yellow lines on the platformsPlease share and post the attached press release with important customer safety information.
 
Service Updates
Today and throughout the parade tomorrow, riders should check the Eagles Parade Section of SEPTA’s website: http://www.septa.org/eagles/index.html for detailed information about parade service and real-time travel updates.  The System Status page at: http://www.septa.org/realtime/status/system-status.shtml will provide real-time service information for all SEPTA services.  SEPTA will also be posting information on a variety of social media platforms, including Twitter – @SEPTA | @SEPTA_Social | @SEPTAPHILLY – and Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/septaphilly/.  Service alerts will also be sent to local news media outlets.
